The initiative for its implementation is the responsibility of National Parks, who in 1954 organized the first Snow Festival in Cerro Catedral, with major sporting and cultural events. There is now a permanent organizing committee created for that purpose.

Each year the organizers were increasing the amount and quality of scheduled events, with national and international competitions in skiing, parades of floats, folk festivals, election of the queen of the snow and chocolate, aerobatic displays, craft shows, contests of regional fabrics and of loggers, car racings and more.

Shows of national and international artists dazzle partygoers. It has attracted bands like Catupecu Machu and Los Auténticos Decadentes.
